North Saskatchewan River trail

Just got home from a family visit to Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. My sister-in-law and I attended an amazing performance of Balletlujah in Edmonton, and my brother and I went for two long beautiful walks along the North Saskatchewan River valley. The landscape was stunning everywhere and huge flocks of Canada Geese and ducks were everyday flying overhead.
